There is so much going on in this movie, but somehow it works. Gavin O'Connor's direction had to be on point in order for the story to make sense, and it is.

This was also one of the few films that made "shaky cam" work. I love the camera work…

Great coming of age story from Greta Gerwig and A24. It had a very independent feel, which I enjoyed. Lady Bird is very well directed, written, and acted. What surprised me was how funny it was.
